California Winter | Camel Coat and Black Boots

 OLD NAVY camel coat, BURBERRY scarf, A New Day boots

I hope you're not bored with camel coat. I'm still kinda obsessed with the coat, and I am wearing it pretty much for the rest of the winter. I just picked up new boots from the new exclusive to Target brand, A New Day. It is surprisingly comfortable, and I will get so much use out of them. 

By the time this is posted, it's already almost the end to 2017. I want to wish you all a very Happy New Year and may 2018 bring you more joy and blessings to come. I hope to bring more quality content to my blog and channel in the next year. Thank you for continue supporting me!

Sunday Afternoon | Burberry Scarf

UNIQLO sweater & jeans (similar), VINCE CAMUTO booties (old), BURBERRY scarf

I've been a fan of the signature Burberry checkered print, and I am so glad that I finally have it in my wardrobe. I opted for the classic cashmere scarf with red hearts. The hearts are only printed on one side, so it's essentially two scarves in one. Pairing the scarf with a basic black top and jeans really brings out an outfit!

Autumn Afternoon | Black and Camel, Gucci Marmont Bag

 OLD NAVY camel coat, UNIQLO sweater & jeans (similar), 
VINCE CAMUTO booties (old), GUCCI marmont medium bag

I used to hate wearing black, but now I have a newfound love with the color. It just goes with everything (d'oh). I am embracing the color with my other familiar neutral colors - came and nude.  The temp is dropping by the day, and it just means Christmas is getting closer =)
I can't believe how fast a year has gone by. A lot has happened within a year, yet I feel like there's just a lot of things I have yet to be done.

I fell in love with this bag the moment I saw a picture of it online. I was debating

I just finished reading The Capital Gaines by Chip GainesOne excerpt that gave me the aha moment comes from a chapter called "Team of Rivals":

"Some people show enormous resistance to modifying even a fraction of themselves. They're not about to shift the way they think or what they think they know. They simply expect others to get with the program - to adjust their mind-set and fall into their way of thinking. How ignorant for any of one of us to assume that we have a monopoly on right perspective and no one else holds even a piece of the puzzle." And later in the chapter, he continues "The truth is, we don't have to agree on everything to be friends, but a lot of people seem to think we do. That popular and toxic lie has taken our beautiful planet and turned it into a battleground. The assumption is, if you don't think like me, not only are you wrong, but you are bad and possibly even evil."

I am, too, sometimes guilty by being too caught up with my own judgments and opinions where the truth is they don't matter. I stand my ground on the things that are principle and important, but I don't get to judge others based on that. If each one of us can learn to approach differences with love and compassion, this world will literally be a better place. In my husband's famous quote, "Why don't we all just get along." (Which he stated as encouragement not as question, hence the period)

As the temp is dropping, fall is feeling more and more real now in nor-cal. I have always been taking advantage of this crisp weather to bust out my cozy coats. With lower temp, it  doesn't really matter what you're wearing inside if you are outside because what people see mostly is your coat. While most of my coats don't really scream statement coats, they do really make my outfits during colder weather.
